Make your Upcycled Origami Bag is a simple workshop suitable for all ages. 

The simple design is inspired from the japanese origami technique. 

During this activity Materiale Centralen UP!cycling team shows how to deal with second hand textiles while teaching few basic sewing techniques. 

The result of this learning experience is the creation of a brand new bag made out of second hand piece of fabric that each participant can bring home and use replacing the polluting habit of using monouse plastic bags.

Participants can bring their own fabrics or take some from our collection if it is needed. 

The recommended textile size is minimum 85 cm X 85 cm or 40 cm X 120 cm

It is eventually possible to use other types of flexible materials that can eventually be combined together with the textiles to experiment different effects and patterns during the workshop.
